Longitudinal, parity-violating single spin asymmetries in proton-proton collisions for RHIC kinematics are considered. The focus of this study is on the production of a single jet as well as a hadron containing a charm quark. While the asymmetry for jets is rather small, considerably larger effects can be expected for the production of charm because of the strongly reduced QCD background. The general outcome of a fixed order calculation is not much affected by the resummation of large threshold logarithms.
